Tomorrow morning I’m flying east to Philadelphia, where I’ll be attending the Authors After Dark (#AADPhilly) conference. On Saturday, August 13th, from 2-4PM, there is a public signing at the Doubletree Hotel. I will be signing, along with these amazing authors.
There is also a Steampunk Ball on Saturday night (9-midnight) in the Ormandy room that is open to the public, but I cannot find the official link for that, either. I’m on the court, though, so I’ll be there and all dressed up. I’m not really a dress-up type of person, but I have these boots, and I kind of love them.
Here’s the description for the Steam Ball:
An extra even open to the steampublic, The Authors After Dark Steamball is a wonderful trip down the gaslit memory lane. With The Olde City Sideshow, a wonderful steampunk burlesque act, Music by DJ KILTBOY, a fantastic reading series and signing from 15 Steampunk authors, Psychics, vendors and a serious treat, the Parlor of Victorian Curiosities, all the way from California!
Tix are 20$ at the door and all attendees will have the opportunities to win some fabulous doorprizes!
If you’re there and see me in the lobby or wherever, please feel free to stop me and say hi! Unless I’m on my way to a panel, I’ll be more than happy to sit and chat for a bit. That’s the best part of these smaller reader cons — lots of face-to-face time!
My partner-in-self-pubbing-crime Carolyn Crane will also be at the conference, and we’ve planned a special promotion for our Wild & Steamy anthology. We’ve got these handy trading cards with a QR code (are we fancy or what?) that will take you directly to excerpts and a special $0.99 promotional price for AAD (and, ahem, if our fiddling with prices means that everyone will be able to take advantage of that promotion, because it turns out that you can’t just lower the price at one bookseller’s venue — instead, it shows up everywhere…well, it’ll be just like you’re at AAD, even if you aren’t there).
So look for us, hit us up for a fancy card (and my Iron Seas trading cards!), and feel free to chat!
See you there!
